"Anthony Davis' line, six rebounds, three points and three blocks, and it ain't close, he's the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft," Calipari said.

  1. Oh man. It takes a phenomenally shameless recruiter to openly promote a freshman basketball player for the NBA Draft before that player's even declared.

  3. Especially after the third game of the year.

  5. And especially if said player scored only two points and had six rebounds in said game, a 40-point blowout. But at that point, it's all so ridiculous you can't even get mad. The audacity's too entertaining.
